Last month, former Bachelorette and one half of 2DAY FM‘s breakfast duo Sam Frost slammed women’s mag New Idea for falsely claiming she and BF Sasha Mielczarek had broken up.
“New Idea get a life! For the one millionth time, Sash & I have not split. In fact we are stronger than ever. Spoilers; Social media isn’t the real world. The media isn’t the real world,” she posted on Facebook, before promptly deleting her page.
Shortly after, she detoxed from social media altogether (although she’s now back on Instagram), seemingly a sensible move for someone who’s been outspoken about bullies and online trolls, and who’s been open about her struggles in dealing with them.
This morning, however, Sam got a dressing down from mega star and unsettling human Robbie Williams for her handling of that mini-crisis.
“Sam, last time we spoke, I told you to ’embrace the madness’,” he lectured at her, seemingly incredulous that anyone could fail to follow the advice of him, Robbie Williams.
“And I was looking online — the next day, you didn’t embrace the madness … you ‘digitally detoxed’ and there was some rumours about you and your relationship, and it made you mad, didn’t it?”
“Look it did, and I lost my marbles,” replied Sam.
“Well this is great, this is one tact of how to do it,” he said, in the sort of tone that definitely implies it was the wrong way. “You can bite your tongue so much that your tongue falls off. But then, you know – the energy of feeling that way, the anger of feeling that way doesn’t feel great.”
Co-host Rove McManus jumped in here, asking if Robbie had any advice for Sam.
